Testimonials. . .

"Dear Amy, I can't express how pleased we are with our engagement and especially our wedding pictures. They are truely to be treasured and cherished for a lifetime. Your efforts surpassed our expectations, our family and many of our friends and co-workers have complimented on how our pictures are "so good, paramount." From the begining I knew that the photography for our wedding was our biggest priority and we resaerched all over the central coast to find the finest. We found it! Thank you!" Christina & Francisco Espindola

The albums are absolutely fabulous. I have given the albums to both my mom and dad this weekend, and they were speechless. They remarked on the incredible design layout for each page how the larger picture captured the overall moment and the smaller pictures included the special little smiles, tears, toasts that help to make the story whole. Only you could have created something so beautiful. Needless to say Eric and I were of little to no help whatsoever. You made the story come to life. It was perfect for us to have someone just take the reins and create a masterpiece. Each time I show my pictures to friends or relatives they marvel at your work. You are truly a talented artist, one that we were truly grateful to have share in our day. We thank you for all that you have done for us".
With love,
Tricia (and Eric too)

"Thank you for your expertise and kindness in capturing life long memories on this most special day in our lives."

With Warm Wishes,

"Pam and I just wanted to thank you in advance for being a part of our day. Even though you were our photographer, we feel like you were a part of the crazy family we have. We thought you are really the best

Those pics are SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO cool – I did an e-mail blast to some of my co-workers here at Intel and they were blown away. They were like “Michael – where did you get that photographer”. I was like “Dude – she’s off the hook – huh?”. In other words, everyone loved your work. Thank you very, very much."

Pammy and Michael

"Although Damian and I won't receive our wedding photographs for a while,I had to write you as soon as we got back from our honeymoon,to thank you and your assistant for making that day one of the happiest of our lives.

Everyone there commented on your sweetness and consideration,and your amazing ability not to never be noticed, but yet to seem to "magically" be there every time your presence was required !!

We'll never forget that amazing day; and sad as we are that it is all over, we know that through your photographs we will relive it each time we look at them. On retrospect, I would say that we made a lot of good choices concerning everyone we worked with; but we both feel you were our best choice by far. Thanks again, and we cannot wait to see the photos,"

with appreciation and kindness,
Michelle & Damian

"Thank you so much. We would both like to express our heartfelt thanks on the wonderful and timely job you did on our photographs. They are beautiful! And so many!! We could not be happier with the variety and amount of shots you took." Michelle & Damian

The photos came out great! Thank you so much for creating such precious digital memories for us. We hope you both
had as much fun as we did! We'll be sure to put out glowing recommendations for you where we can :) It was a wonderful pleasure

"I just received the photos and I am SO HAPPY! Thank you so much. Eusebio hasn't had a chance to look at them, but I know he'll be just as thrilled as I am when he sees the pics. I don't know how you managed (with ALL those people) to get the photos that you did - but you are a miracle worker and made it happen. (By the way, everyone at the wedding adored you!) Which we knew they would. =)
One of my co-workers cried when she saw the picture of my dad and I dancing in the entry way. Crazy, huh?
Hope you are having a good Monday. I sure am!"


"The pictures are gorgeous! You did such an amazing job, really,
unbelievable. Thank you! I posted a complimentary review of your work
on the Santa Barbara Wedding website. I'm sure your photography
business will enjoy much success!!! I hope to work with you in the
future as our family eventually starts to grow!
Thanks again for everything!"

"Thank you again for all of your hard work on Sunday! Darren and I cannot express enough how happy we have been with our decision to hire you. All of our family agreed that you that you are a delight to work with, and after seeing our engagement photos, they are as confident as we are that you captured our wedding beautifully!"

"I AM SO EXCITED TO SEE YOUR BEAUTIFUL WORK!!! We enjoyed having you as well and look forward to having baby pictures, family portraits, etc. taken by you for the rest of eternity :) The honeymoon was fantastic. We took about 700 photos. Perhaps next time we are in SB, we can grab a glass of wine and show them to you. Amy, thanks so much for everything. We loved having you and Henry photograph us and our family & friends."

Best always,

"We recieved our photos today! We are so happy with how they turned out! Thank-you so much, you did an amazing job!

Thank you SO very much. All of the photos are just so beautiful!!"

"Hi Amy!
I just picked up the mail and was so excited to see the pictures. I haven’t even gone through the whole CD, but I’m so impressed that I had to take a break to let you know how much we love them!!! Oh my gosh, they are better than we ever could have expected. The way you captured the moments on the beach without them looking too “posed” is amazing. And the colors are so vibrant, but you also chose the perfect pictures to do in black/white and sephia. You truly have a gift! Even though we’re all the way in Texas, we will definitely be calling you to do our next family pictures when we come out to Santa Barbara again next year – by that time the newest addition to our family will have arrived (and hopefully Makena won’t be eating the sand!). J
Thank you again! "

Ram, Lara, and Makena

"We received our pictures today.
We can not believe how fortunate we are to have had you and Henry do our wedding photography. The photos far exceeded what we were expecting--they are so fluid, artistic, and creative. You are a wonderful artist, as is Henry. Thank you so much for providing such wonderful work. We now have exquisite, beautiful images to remind us of our special day forever."

Jennifer and Peter Sheldon

"Hi Amy, Wow, wow WOW!!!!! Only on rare occasion do I tear up repeatedly at my clients' event photos. It happened A LOT here. Especially the friday night shoot. WOW! Thank you for sharing these images with me. It was a real pleasure to work with you as well. Many thanks for capturing everything so beautifully!!" Leanne Soleil Events

"We got our pictures yesterday and love them. The color and clarity are amazing! We are very impressed you managed to get any shots of Keegan with him being out of sorts. Thanks so much, it was fun! Now we have to choose which ones to make as prints...We would love for you to take pictures of us again, probably next summer. Thanks again!"

"I am so impressed with how beautifully the photos turned out! You are very talented. I am recommending you to everyone I know! Thank you so much!"
Xo Cindy
